Welcome to The Association of Independent Funeral Professionals
Our goal is to give support to our members and to educate the community about existing funeral service options and to help our families understand the need for pre-planning to help get through a difficult time. Our membership works diligently to preserve the rich heritage of the funeral service profession and the emerging specialities related to end-of- life care and death care in Australia and overseas. This goal is inclusive of all those who operate in allied industries and professions.
If you are a end-of-life, death care or funeral professional working in Australia or anywhere overseas, or if you provide any allied services for these areas we sincerely invite you to become a member. Should you have questions, or need assistance in any way, please connect with us using the form on our Contact Us page.

There’s something so much more important than selling products and that is service to families. One where originality trumps one-size-fits-all solutions, where funerals are as likely to be a celebration of life as they are an observance of death.
To make a success of your business, you need to excel at everything and by joining an association like The Association of Independent Funeral Professionals, we can help you understand the lay of the land, stand by you as you stake your claim in this new environment and turn a change into an opportunity.
Having another voice to speak on your behalf and ears to listen to you, we will help uncover new solutions to deliver services to your families.
